Keeping the Walking Trail and City Clean

By Staff | Jun 17, 2015

Sistersville workers, Russell Weekley, Rodney Moore and Buckwheat, have been working hard to improve an eyesore along the walking trail behind Sistersville General Hospital.

The area had been used as a place to dump tree branches and limps but most recently many have been throwing rebar, concrete, trash and other debris in the area. Cleanup is now underway and from this point on no dumping will be allowed.

City councilman Harold Dally said, the city wishes to make the area a place where walkers and the general public will be able to enjoy the trail and the view of the river without having to look at debris and garbage.

“If it is not forbidden trees may be trimmed back as to give a better view of the river,” Dally said.

He also noted grass will be sewed and park benches are planned as a resting area, for those walking the trail or the casual visitor. Dally said he would like to thank the workers involved in the cleanup.
